"Trying to meet new people who are like-minded (atheists, agnostics, freethinkers, non-theists, etc.). I am in Turkey now and I am coming in Minnesota, Twincities on January 2011 for 8 months. I'd like to meet like-minded friends."

Thank you for posting a photo to the site. We have several members who are students at the U. The U also has a very active student group called CASH (Campus Atheists Skeptics and Humanists). You can go to their website: www.cashumn.org. You may even be able to post a request for housing there. You can also try posting an ad on our site's discussion board to see if anyone who lives near the U is looking for a roommate. Unfortunately, I live about 1/2 hour from campus. Good luck!
How exciting! More information about yourself would be helpful. Are you male or female (sorry, I can't tell from your name)? What is your age? That seems like a strange question, but being a Phd student, you could be 24 or 64. Smoker or non-smoker? If you stay with non-smokers, expect to smoke outside in the cold; Americans are increasingly intolerant of smoking. Do you prefer to live near U of M campus so you can walk or use the bus to get to class?
Wow! Now that's good planning ahead! You've come to the right place, Ozgem. Each month our calendar offers a variety of events. Looking forward to meeting you in 2011.
